“You know, the strange thing is, I… I should be with Billy. Until most recently, I’m quite certain I would have been. Unbothered by the idea of trading your life for the rest of the crew’s. And yet, for some reason, right now I am bothered by it. But I understand it. I understand the allure of ensuring that no one will ever think you the villain you fear you are. What a waste it seems to me, knowing it doesn’t have to be this way. Knowing the man who talked me into giving a shit about this crew… why, he could talk those people out there into anything. If he wanted to.”
You’re amazing. I know this for a fact. You may not have been looking for this post, but here it is, making sure you know that you matter, at least to me. Days get tough, but you are amazing. You always have been and always will be. Have a nice day you wonderful, wonderful person.
Clay….Helmet. Your name does not belong on this list. But you need to be here if I’m going to tell my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy. You’re different. You’re good. And kind. And decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would’ve ruined you.
that little scene definitely reminded me of the proud failure speech. naruto opening up to hinata about his worries and putting himself down, hinata being like, “no, that’s not true, you’re doing your best and i love you for that”
even as adults their relationship hasn’t changed. they stay uplifting each other and seeing the best in each other and it’s such a beautiful and heartwarming thing to witness. i just love this ship so much.
an unpopular opinion but one of the reasons i love harry and ginny way more than ron and hermione is because it felt more relatable to me? ron and hermione are an amazing will-they-won’t-they ship and i enjoyed them immensely but i could never relate to them? it feels more natural to me to get feelings for someone unexpectedly like harry did with ginny because that’s how it normally happens with couples in real life. harry started liking ginny because he liked hanging out with her and she made him laugh and isn’t that how relationships and crushes normally start? because in my experience that’s how they usually happen. i don’t know why everyone is so obsessed with giving the hero an epic fairytale love story when we got a more natural and realistic one? i’m incredibly grateful that jk rowling wrote harry and ginny like this and did not give the hero a repeated love story trope.
